McMullen, James Joseph (1857–1928)

James Joseph McMullen, a well-known poultry farmer, of Plumpton, Rooty Hill, died on Sunday at Parramatta District Hospital as the result of injuries and exposure.

McMullen, who was 71, was driving along the Richmond-road from Blacktown towards his home on the preceding Friday night, when apparently as the result of a wheel of his sulky sinking into a deep rut, he was thrown out.

He was tossed into a pool of water about a foot deep and rendered unconscious, and in that condition he remained all night.

When found next morning he was lying upon his side with water almost covering his body. The Parramatta Ambulance removed him to Parramatta District Hospital, where he died as stated.

Deceased was well known at Lidcombe, and prior to the interment on Tuesday, a service was conducted in St Joachim's Church.
